“Panini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Stopped here on the spur of the moment, looking for a quick lunch. I had a great panini, ham, cheese and unique pineapple spread. I was walking and they were helpful, in packaging my lunch up, to keep it warm as I walked back to the B+B where we were staying.

“Great, imaginative sandwiches in the Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Seaside Cheese Company has recently moved to larger quarters in a new location in West Cape May (110 Park Blvd). The new facility includes Café Fromage, a small restaurant adjunct to the cheese shop. My wife and I were intrigued by the Cafe's menu and visited for a late lunch.

The menu includes some great sounding sandwiches and plates, for example: the Seaside Panini comprised of triple cream brie and carmelized walnuts with fig spread; the Paris Panini comprised of French ham, Swiss cheese, roasted pineapple, dijon mustard; the Victorian comprised of oven roasted turkey, mascarpone cheese, spring mix, sliced tomato, and cream of balsamic; a pate plate with a choice of pate, roasted peppers, and cornichons served with toast; and a cheese plate with three cheeses, fig spread, honey and crackers. On Fridays macaroni and cheese is offered, a different one each week. Many of the paninis are value-priced at $7.95.

My wife picked the macaroni and cheese, and I chose the Maryann, a panini of Brie, roasted turkey and sour cherry spread ($7.95). Like many of the panini, this one was pressed and served warm.

The Maryann was marvelous, quite large, with lots of sliced turkey and overflowing with creamy Brie, and the sour cherry spread was an inspired touch. My wife's macaroni and cheese was a generous serving and tasty, but she thought that cheeses with more distinct flavor would improve it. Since there will be a different one each week, she will try it again.

There was no waitress service; we ordered at a counter and someone brought our food to our table. I would be surprised if this didn't change as the café gains in popularity, as it surely will.

The cheese shop offers a mind-boggling selection of imported and domestic cheeses (100+), as well as cheese spreads, pates, salamis, proscuito, olives, breads...on and on.

If weight gain were not an issue, this would be a great place to hang out.

“This cheese stands alone!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We did several parties this summer and always sourced our cheese and charcuterie here. The staff is very helpful, freely offering small samples and very good at wine pairings. The pate is flavorful and reasonably priced, we have some of it to last us into the winter. A regular stop on our summer route. Combine with the "bread lady" on Sunset Boulevard and you cannot do better.

“large selection world class cheeses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

They have a cheese plate for around $10 that includes three cheeses and some fruit and crackers and fig sauce and honey. It was a lovely snack. We took it on the ferry and bought wine to go along. I did pick 2 of my cheeses. Not sure if you can pick all three. I would buy it again. The cheeses were divine.One was the pesto cheese.....heavenly!

“Great selection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stop in this cheese shop each year we visit Cape May. Huge variety of cheese from all over the world. You can sample before you purchase which is a good thing. They also serve sandwiches which is a nice addition so you can take it to go and visit the great beaches of Cape May. Owner is very friendly as well.
